Steering Committee for the Workshop on Issues in Research on Violence Against Women  

 

Project Scope

The Committee on Law and Justice proposes to assemble a sub-committee to convene a workshop on Violence Against Women. Presentations and discussions will focus on areas in which research on violence against women is lacking, and on strategies for filling in those gaps. Background papers will be commissioned for presentation at the workshop. These papers will be circulated before the workshop and will serve as the basis for the discussion of the major areas being explored. A sub-committee of the Committee on Law and Justice will prepare a report that synthesizes the papers and discussions and recommends a new research agenda. The report will be submitted to the sponsor, participants, and other interested parties, and commissioned papers also will be made available.

 Workshop on Violence Against Women  report cover

 Report

 

 

This report expands on the work of an earlier National Research Council panel whose report, Understanding Violence Against Women, was published in 1996. The report is based on the presentations and deliberations of a workshop convened in January 2002, at the request of Congress, to develop a detailed research agenda on violence against women. While some of the research recommendations in the earlier report have been funded and carried out, the workshop demonstrated that important gaps remain. For example, prevalence and incidence data are still inadequate to measure trends or to reveal whether interventions being designed under federal programs are, in fact, working. Among its primary recommendations, the committee underscored the importance of strengthening the data and research infrastructure in this area, especially the need for better prevalence data and longitudinal data to determine the causes of violent victimization of women and the impact of interventions.
